On the live stream, @SavageAce said this:
"The reason we switched our service to UTC was to standardize the time zones between our European and North American servers, and make it easier for us to plan out event times and such. Now, we do realize it did cause previous events, previous reset times, to be a little bit inconvenient, so we are looking into that. Future events like 2x, spell trace fever, we've already adjusted the times a little bit, to account for UTC and the different players playing all around the world. But we do want to make it convenient for, not just people in North America, or Europe, specifically, but all of our players all around the world."
This is from January 4, 2017
It's been 11 months.
Kritias Invasions and Flag Races still don't run at convenient times for Americans.
Orchid's phone calling must still be done for 30 days in a row at a time of day that maintenances often overlap, in addition to being in the middle of the school or work day for Americans.
The upcoming Bingo event is still going to run only 14 consecutive hours a day, so people in some parts of the world will have far less availability than others.
And these are really easy changes. How much "thorough discussion and plan" is necessary before you can reschedule some content? More than 11 months' worth, apparently.
So how long do you think it will take to figure out a solution for Reboot's meso shortage?
Longer than that, obviously.
Also longer than it's taking to figure out a way to replace our lost Star Planet Reward Points. Star Planet was removed in October 2016. And no, 2k RP a month in Hot Weeks and Attendances do not make up for up to 1.5k a day
before. They don't even make up for the lost Reward Points from the Monster Collection reward reductions - reductions that were not communicated beforehand nor commented on after the fact, of course.
So, yeah. Sorry, @Arwoo, and sorry, VFMs, but when we doubt SavageAce's memo, we have long and painful experience to justify our skepticism. Our experience clearly indicates that Nexon is very good at instantly breaking stuff, and takes way too long to undo the damage - if it ever does so at all.
